Journal Club

Join us for the AAMC Journal Club – we’ll agree, we’ll disagree, we’ll laugh, we’ll learn. Journal Clubs are a fun and interesting way to improve knowledge of current research, apply research and best practice models to nursing practice and discuss clinical issues.

The AAMC Journal Club is always held on the third Monday of the month, from 12-1pm in the 2nd floor conference room, South Tower.
